The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's baby will be third in line to the British throne, bumping Prince Harry down to the fourth position.

TresSugarSource: The Best Quotes From Our Conversation With the First Lady
This week we joined First Lady Michelle Obama on the campaign trail in Virginia, where she spoke to a crowd of grassroots volunteers. She also took an hour to sit down with us and a few other women journalists to have a conversation about what is at stake for women in this election, how she instills everyday values in her daughters as they grow up in the White House, and the ups and downs of being first lady - she just wishes she could walk into a CVS and buy some soap! The first lady was very candid, warm, and reliably relatable. Read on for some of her best pieces of advice, insight, and humor.
- On Everyday Life: "Yesterday, I hosted a doggy playdate. This has been a goal of Sasha's for quite some time because she's really feeling, on top of everything else I have to worry about, that Bo doesn't have enough dog interaction. So this is what I was focused on, doggy treats and toys."

It was 50 years ago, in 1962, that Sean Connery became the first James Bond on the big screen in Dr. No and the iconic sexy, suited-up secret agent was born. Aside from impeccable dressing and his shaken, not stirred, martini, it's James's ladykiller skills that stand the test of time, and 007 has been reincarnated over the years with a handful of actors playing the film role to kill for. This Fall, Daniel Craig returns as James Bond in Skyfall, and we cannot wait to see him continue to seduce the ladies (and us) in his third James Bond movie. Ahead of the latest Bond flick, let's look back at the best, most innuendo-filled pickup lines from gun-wielding heartthrob. Check out more infamous Bond quotes here!

We are thrilled to share the next answer in our series with First Lady Michelle Obama. Since we're in back-to-school mode, this week we're focusing on education and women's health. Here's the first lady in her own words about the economy and family:
TrèsSugar editor Annie Scudder asks, "What can we do to make the cost of starting and raising a family in America more affordable? The price of quality education, health care, and child care sometimes seem prohibitive in this country."
"Annie, I really appreciated getting this question, because for me, it really crystallizes the choices we're facing in this election. When I think back to when Barack took office as president, I remember how our economy was on the brink of collapse, losing 800,000 jobs a month. And for years, middle-class families had been squeezed from all sides as costs were rising and wages just weren't keeping up.

Romantic comedies, reality TV dating shows, and soap operas are all filled with dramatic relationship ups and downs. And watching these unrealistic portrayals of romance might not be an inconsequential guilty pleasure. A new study found that the more people buy into portrayals of romance on TV, the less committed they are to their relationships. But it's not because these fictional love stories make them long for the perfect relationship. In fact, those who have a higher belief in TV portrayals of romance believe relationships are more costly, and are more likely to consider alternatives, like a new partner or being single.
The study referenced reality TV shows like The Bachelor or The Hills, soap operas like Days of Our Lives, and movies like Pretty Woman or The Notebook. Participants who agreed with statements like "Television helps me understand what I can expect from my romantic relationships," or

Donors dressed in their best headed to New York's 40/40 Club last night to attend a fundraiser for President Obama hosted by Jay-Z and Beyoncé Knowles.
